Favorite Blushes ♥

Can't have a blog with the word blush in it without a post about...well blush! If I could only have one type of makeup for the rest of my life it would have to be blush. I love blush - especially soft glitter and sparkle and pinks. I try not to go over the top with application (nobody's said anything yet), but sometimes it's hard when you love a specific color so much!

Here are my favorite blushes as of right now

The MAC Ombre blush is my most recent favorite. I did a post earlier regarding how much I love this blush. I've never had a cooler or purply blush before and wasn't sure if I'd love it on my skin tone, but I do! The mix of pink and purple create a gorgeous look.

The MAC Mineralize blush was one of my first blushes. I was into something more pink, pigmented and glittery and this one became one of my favorites. I still love using it now and then today when I want a more pink look.
I alternate between these two when I want color or something a little different.

Nars in Deep Throat is one of my staple blushes. I love love love it. It's very natural and I love the sheen and very slight shimmer it produces. It's very light and fresh. I was an Orgasm lover until I tried Deep Throat. I also have Super Orgasm, which I find a bit too gold and glittery for my liking, but it's still a beautiful color - great for the night out.

My boyfriend bought me this Chanel blush for Christmas. It creates a very natural and sheer look - a very pretty flush for those with fairer skin. I find it has a slight tint of brown to it, which helps to create that natural look. I would love this blush in Fuschia.

The Aveda Petal Essence cheek tint was my first non-powder blush. This is probably my favorite blush out of all the blushes I have. It was a bit tricky to use at first, but after a bit of experimentation I found that it was easier to use than powder and so much more natural. Phlox gives the perfect dewy pink - everytime I apply it my face looks so bright and fresh. I always have this blush in my purse (it's super easy to apply with my fingers). Sadly, Aveda discontinued this blush :(

Purchasing blushes can be so addicting. My blush collection seems to grow a bit more every time I organize my makeup. Any blushes you lovelies would recommend?
